In December 2017 the Quarrymen visited the city of Usti nad Labem in the  Czech Republic at the invitation of the Boom Beatles Revival Band &  Orchestra - a group of Beatles tribute musicians who have appeared In  Liverpool’s Beatle Week - to play in their annual Christmas Concert in  aid of local cancer charities. It was a great evening - after a Q & A session the Quarrymen played a 60 minute set, followed by the Orchestra which consisted of some 25 musicians and singers. Len Garry was invited to sing “Long and Winding Road”€¯ backed by the whole orchestra, who then went on to play a superb selection of Beatles music under the direction of Pavel Nepivoda. For the rest of the evening the enthusiastic crowd  was entertained by the Boom Band. The Boom and Orc even produced a 20th  Anniversary Birthday Cake for the Quarrymen as we got back together in  1997! The Quarrymen also visited the city museum to try out some of the  local folk instruments - see photo below!
